Relaxation and Mindfulness Retreats

At the Retreat we teach relaxation and mindfulness by encouraging children to use their senses in a fun and interactive way.  Children are guided by their innate love for the natural world. The retreat will enable children to learn lifelong skills towards good health and wellbeing. Together we will create a relaxing story that can be used at home benefiting the whole family.


Home schooling group: Noakes Grove campfire


Most Tuesdays a wider age range of children spend several hours at Noakes Grove (with their parents or carers). This is the local home-schooling group who make the whole of Noakes Grove their classroom for a day.
